Staycation at We Ko Pa Casino Resort

Hi everyone! I’m back with my favorite kind of blog post to share- a staycation/vacation post! This weekend Ryan and I had the pleasure of staying at We Ko Pa. This was my first time going and we had an amazing experience! They have everything you could possibly want- spa, great food, entertainment, a pool, and of course the casino.

We started off our trip by exploring the property which has been redone and added to! In 2020 they opened the new part of the property and it’s amazing! The casino is all non-smoking which I love.

One of the absolute highlights of the weekend was Ember, their fine dining restaurant. The service and the food was 10/10! I haven’t been so blown away by an experience in a long time.

We started off with a couple appetizers. The first was wagyu and tuna that they cook right in front of you on a hot stone. The flavor was fantastic and we loved getting to see it be prepared.

Next we got to taste their scallop dish! Scallops are one of my favorite foods and the flavors their chef paired together were beyond good.

For our entrees we got the Snake River Farms Wagyu Striploin and the Bison Tenderloin. Both were phenomenal and were paired with delicious sides!

You can check out their menu here.

We ended the meal with a yummy dessert- they light it on fire! It’s a great way to end the meal.

The next day we went the the spa for massages! We got Swedish massages and they were great. I loved my therapist and was super relaxed the whole time. The environment was very peaceful and it was the perfect way to end our time at We Ko Pa!

If you are wanting to get away I can’t recommend We Ko Pa enough!

Our room was huge, we had tons of space to relax while we were in there.

Thank you so much to We Ko Pa for having us! We had the best time and can’t wait to come back again soon.

Scottsdale Staycation

Hi everyone! I had the most relaxing weekend at The Westin Kierland. This is my second year going, and I always have a great time! This year I was solo, which never happens for vacations and staycations. I started off enjoying the nice weather sitting out on my patio. I relaxed before going downstairs to their restaurant Nellie Cashman. I sat outside and listened to the live entertainment for the night, which was a man playing bagpipes! I ordered a delicious burger with potato wedges.

After getting back to my room, I found a surprise waiting for me from the resort!

I cozied up in bed with the blanket they brought me and watched Twilight before bed.

The next morning I went downstairs and grabbed a yogurt and a chai latte and sat outside. They have a beautiful view of the golf course and the weather was great in the morning.

I had such a relaxing stay and after that I headed to an influencer event! If you want more details make sure to follow me on Instagram!

My Top Summer Vacation Spots

Hi everyone! With the world starting to open up more, people are finally starting to vacation again! I can’t wait to travel and go to some of my favorite states.

I’ll be heading to Wyoming and then Utah around the 4th of July and I can’t wait! My boyfriend and I drive there during the summer. It takes over 15 hours to get there but it is totally worth it. I love sightseeing along the way. There are so many beautiful places you drive through depending on which way you want to take!

We stay in a small town outside of Jackson Hole, WY. They put on the really fun 4th and it is such a good time. I want to go back to Yellowstone again this year. I have such a good time there, it is absolutely breathtaking. There are tons of things to do in Wyoming! The nature is definitely the best part. Driving around you will see bears and elk and all sorts of cool wildlife. We also love the natural hot springs located in a town a couple hours away.

This year we plan on taking our time going back through Utah and doing some exploring there! They have tons of very cool places such as right outside Provo in the canyons there are lakes and lots of fun activities to do there! We will also hopefully stop a couple times closer to AZ and sightsee over there. I will be making an updated travel guide for both Utah and Wyoming!

I have a couple of other places I am planning on making a trip to around AZ and also New Mexico! My boyfriend has a cabin right on the border of those states so we will be going there a few times to escape the heat. I also love doing day trips to Sedona, Flagstaff, and Prescott!

Hopefully we will also book a California trip to be able to enjoy the beach for a few days. I haven’t been to the beach in forever so I’m hoping we will get a hotel or Airbnb booked in Laguna or around there!

I already can’t wait to get out of this Arizona heat and go explore!

The Best Places To Take Photos In Arizona Part 2

I got a ton of requests to showcase places to take photos around Scottsdale and Phoenix. I decided making it into two parts would be the best way.

First up is DC Ranch! This place is great for photo shoots. It isn’t usually very busy and there are a ton of places with great lighting.

Hotels are some of my favorite places for great aesthetic spots. I picked two that I absolutely love!

First up is The Scott. There are tons of spots around this hotel to get amazing photos! The atmosphere is perfect.

Civana in Carefree is gorgeous! It also has stunning scenery around the property.

Cave Creek’s frontier town is an absolute hidden gem. I love going here to take my photos, especially being in some cute cowgirl boots!

The last spot is City North! There are lots of spots that are great for bloggers to come and take photos.

I hope this helped give you some ideas on where to take photos in AZ!

Sedona Day Trip

Living in Arizona is amazing! This state has so much to offer and one of my favorite little road trips is Sedona. I live only an hour and a half away which makes it the perfect escape for the day.

My best friend and I headed up to enjoy lunch, take some pictures, and enjoy the change of scenery. We mostly hung out around Tlaquepaque. Our first stop was The Secret Garden! It is one of my favorite places for lunch. The food is amazing, and they have a covered patio for seating. I highly recommend trying the Taos Club, it is delicious.

Because of the wind and the weather they had the plastic down.

We spent most of the rest of the time walking around. It is so beautiful there. It is busier in the winter, most of the time I go to Sedona during the summer months so there are less people walking around.

Being there you almost feel like you are in another country. It is stunningly picturesque. Day tripping or vacationing in Sedona in general is a great break from reality.

Nicole and I took tons of photos for Instagram! Make sure to follow along on https://www.instagram.com/thebusybrunetteblog and if you are interested in shopping my looks Click Here !
